    Who else here finds doctors to be hotter... just because they're doctors?

    What is it about them that makes them hot?

    The knowledge? Intelligence? If that's the case, you also like scientists, professors, hackers...

    Is it the wealth? If that's the case, then you don't like residents and you also like millionaires, regardless of profession.

    Is it the attentiveness? If that's the case, then you also like nurses and therapists of all types.

    Is it hypochondria? Some doctors hate to talk about medicine off duty. This is without mentioning the specialties which might not have anything to do with your specific health fears. Moreover, if STIs are your specific fear, their flesh is weak like anyone else's.

    I don't feel anything special for scientists, professors, millionaires, nurses or any kind of therapist.

    I do however like doctors and I don't know why...

    Earlier in my career I was a tax accountant. My experience with clients who were doctors led to some cognitive dissonance, as in "How the Hell did he/she get into medical school????" Sadly, my pre-conceived notions about brilliant doctors was shattered so they have no more allure for me than any other regular Joe Schmo.

    I've had a crush on my dentist ever since he took over the practice about 10 years ago. He's probably around 40, maybe early 40's, but just so cute and gorgeous! Whenever I go in for a checkup, I want to tell him to take the mask off so I can see his gorgeous face!

    I tend to think that good doctors need to have a what's called a good bedside manner. That could be part of their allure, that they're, to use a Jane Austin term, amiable. And friendly, sympathetic, interested in you, easy to talk to, etc. Just the opposite of my cohorts, computer programmers, who were often anti-social troglodytes.

    Interesting... their professional "sweetness", that you mention is super erotic to me: sweet in office... naughty in bed! icon_twisted.gif

    As a banker in my past life, I knew a bunch of them. In fact I managed an entire division that did nothing but bank doctors, and I can tell you, they ain't all that. They do make a lot of money and they have to be really stupid to not make a lot of money, but that's because of our screwed up health policies. In other advanced countries, they earn about what a banker or lawyer or business exec would make. They do have a learned friendliness that doesn't come naturally. Most of my undergrad pre-med friends were socially awkward and even backward because they were always studying so they could get into med school. They have a tendency to feel entitled because of their long educational path that once out should give way to a yellow brick road in their minds. But like everyone else, some are assholes, some are nice, some are cool, some are jerks. I think women like them because they become a "daddy" figure to them, the all knowing, wise, kind guy. And because of our insurance mess, we don't even know when they're picking our pockets. But every now and then, one is spectacular. Maybe you're just fantasizing about that one spectacular one in your head.

    I do not. I respect physicians, but don't wanna be one myself.

    My parents wanted that for me, or maybe an attorney. Something professional, that everyone would respect (at least back in the 1950s).

    Instead I told them I wanted to be an architect. Which they finally begrudgingly tolerated, despite a lot of resistance. That I never became, BTW. Choosing the Army instead, which really horrified them.

    My problem with pursuing medicine was both wimpy, and a weakness in self-confidence.

    I didn't want to deal with people's gross insides. Too disgusting for me. And I didn't want to be responsible for making life and death decisions for other people. If I got it wrong they could die. I was afraid of that responsibility.

    It was also the main reason I resisted for so long taking an Army Officer's commission, repeatedly offered to me. It was OK to be a Sergeant, and just march soldiers around, make them clean their barracks. But I took more orders from above than I gave at my rank, with less personal responsibility if things went wrong.

    As an Officer I was more likely to be making life or death decisions for others. Something that frightened me, as it did had I chosen a medical career, or even a legal one. I screw up defending some innocent guy and he goes to jail forever, or even to death row.

    I didn't want that burden on my shoulders. How could I sleep at night? I wasn't confident enough that I could do it well.

    I finally caved, I think more to vanity and ambition than a sense of duty, to take an Officer's commission. Becoming responsible for the lives & welfare of others. But also ironically, I went on to see nearly as much blood & guts as doctors do. So I didn't escape that fear, either. Still, the Army thought I did a good job at what I did, awarded me with medals and gave me rapid promotions.

    As far as doctors being hot, I find them to be men like any others. I know some who are gay (and even more attorneys, too), but all of them are partnered, as I am. So not of personal concern to me. Your profession doesn't impart any special aura to you, in my view. You are as you appear, no more and no less.

    But yeah, maybe it's the way these Doctors take care of you when you're sick, I find that attractive.

    Could be the glamour from television that adds to appeal. Medical shows like Greys anatomy often fuel the ideas we have of doctors being caring, intelligent, wealthy heroes who do noble stuff like saving lives and all that. In contrast, other healthcare workers dont usually have all those in as much quantity as a doc, (cash, brains, authority/responsibility) , at least that's what tv implies. Nothing could be further from true though but well, that's just what we think when we hear about docs. Definitely counts towards appeal i think

    To me this started in early 2013 when I fell in love hard with a doctor I met in my gym. It ended with a huge heartbreak when he met his current boyfriend, a huge muscle bear. How could I possibly compete...

    After I recovered and finally moved on a year later, I met a guy who ended up being one of my best friends - a dermatologist. A short while after that the first guy I had dates and sex with was an anesthesiologist. My friends started asking why so many doctors. I truly believe it was a major coincidence.

    I dated a firefighter for a few months thinking the doctor wave was over. Then I met a guy who according to friends was the hottest guy I've ever dated. He happens to be an otolaryngologist.

    Then I moved to Montreal. I picked the guy who I thought was the most sweet and cute. He invited me to his place. Upon arriving, I noticed his place was nicer than normal, so I asked "what do you do for a living?" -- he's an oncologist. I was perplexed.

    When I said I like doctors, this is an after the fact impression, but it can all be just a huge coincidence as I pick by other criteria and only ask the profession later. Unless I have a doctor radar...
